The right way to approach this is to have two permanent installations, like the United Nations, and rather than build a new venue each time, just re-use the one we have.

Sometimes in movies or TV shows, the music or the actors' reactions make claims that the story can't support. A dramatic build for something boring or stupid. At the end of this wonderful scene, Don has to sit down, he's so in awe. And so are we. The music resumes, the credits roll. Wow.
This Washington Post piece explains that the Supreme Court said Florida couldn't execute a retarded inmate, but they don't say why.
But I don't get why the special treatment just because someone is intellectually limited? Is it because it's not possible for them to participate in their own defense, making it more likely that we'll kill an innocent person?
That is, by the way, why I am opposed to the death penalty. Even one innocent person executed by the state is so reprehensible as to make the penalty impossible to implement, aside from the lunacy of the whole act.
